7 reasons to use 3M DI-NOC Architectural Film

3M DI-NOC Architectural Film in recent times has been transcending the building industry, and more specifically transcending the way we look at interior refurbishments.

Gone are the days where ripping out existing surfaces which are structurally sound is the norm, today we are seeing interior wrapping beginning to takeover. To the point where in many cases DI-NOC is very much the go-to solution for facilities managers, interior designers and the like.

So, what is all the fuss about?

In this blog we will bring to you 7 reasons why DI-NOC is so popular, but more importantly for you, 7 reasons why you should be considering 3M DI-NOC for your next project.

Best in class

With 3M DI-NOC you really do have a leading-edge solution for interior refurbs, a product that gives you a guarantee of the best results.

Let’s take 3M’s strapline for instance; ‘Science Applied To Life’. A true pioneer of technology is the type of brand we are dealing with here and that is no different with the 3M DI-NOC product.

Is there other products out there in the industry which are similar to 3M DI-NOC? Yes, there absolutely is. Some are good, some are nasty. But none match up to the quality of 3M DI-NOC, and that really is a promise. We will cover some of these stand out qualities further into the blog.

It’s true what they say. Not all films are created equal.

Cost Savings

Despite being the best product out there, DI-NOC can save you money too! And this is great news in the current client isn’t it? Saving money has been on the tip of everyone’s tongue over recent times.

‘Is it cheap then?’ I hear you ask. No, the product isn’t ‘cheap’ because it isn’t a ‘cheap’ material. It’s a highly engineered film, so you pay for what you get.


Renovating with architectural film is generally 1/7th the cost of investing in new interiors. And the list is almost endless why. From the lack of disruption, to the speed of application, to the minimal upkeep required, to the longevity of the film, you are saving from all sorts of angles.

Multiple Applications

The conformability of 3M DI-NOC is another key USP of this game changing product.

DI-NOC conforms elegantly with heat meaning the film isn’t limited to just flat surfaces, the products can in fact adhere to most surfaces, making them ideal for a whole host of different applications.

Whether that’s; walls, tables, reception desks, cabinets or much more, the opportunities are truly endless. The fact the film can go onto so many different surfaces means the product is perfect for an array of different sectors in the commercial environment too, providing a one-stop solution.

1000+ Finishes at your fingertips

With 3M DI-NOC, the only thing holding you back is your own imagination.

The range of films with this product is quite simply out of this world! With 1000+ finishes available in the portfolio from a vast variety of patterns families, you really can meet the demands of any project with 3M DI-NOC Architectural Film.

Perhaps the most impressive thing about the patterns in the range is not the sheer amount, it’s how the products keep evolving year on year. As already drilled home in this piece, 3M really do invest in R&D and this has come true with recent new ‘Abrasion Resistant’ and ‘Matte’ finishes which are like nothing we have seen before in the market.

The bar is always being raised.

Sustainability is the name of the game these days, isn’t it? The environmentally conscious society is ever growing.

Statistics actually show that the Millennial generation are willing to pay more for services by companies that are committed to creating a positive environmental impact.

This society shift has transcended into interior refurbishments without a doubt too. With 3M DI-NOC Architectural Film you are bringing a sustainable solution to your environment. When refurbing with film you are preserving existing surfaces (which otherwise would be going to landfill) whilst giving them the revamp and refresh they so desperately need!

The utilisation of 3M DI-NOC even contributes to the acquisition of LEED credits!

Realistic Finish

There is a bit of trepidation in terms of faux finishes. ‘If its not the real thing, why bother?’ Is the type of statements we see get banded about.

And there is some bad examples of faux finishes out there, that just do not cut the mustard.

But with 3M DI-NOC, you have a product that recreates the look and feel of natural materials like no other. The aesthetics of the film is second to none, replicating the look of a real material to the most minior of detail. As for the feel for the product, this really is something else. I can guarantee you that when you feel 3M DI-NOC you will without a doubt believe it is ‘the real thing’.

You really do have to feel it, to believe it.


But. How long will it last? Is a very fair question to ask when it comes to 3M DI-NOC. It’s all well and good the product looking amazing and saving you lots of money but if the product is going to fail, what’s the point in that?

3M DI-NOC is the most durable product in the industry, and that’s a fact. The high-performing product has a warranty for 12 years for interior applications (and will probably last for longer), meaning the product is there to stay.

In fact, although you can remove the product (with heat), you are more likely to wrap on top of this product than removing it.
